Abstract

TCRP Web-Only Document 53 presents the findings and results of the investigation conducted in support of TCRP Project A-32, “Operation of Light Rail Transit through Ungated Crossings at Speeds over 35 MPH.” In addition, this report presents the findings of the micro-simulation modeling conducted as an alternative to an evaluation of the impacts of higher LRV speeds on selected locations in San Jose. The project panel agreed that the modeling was a feasible and valid alternative to a field test, necessitated by the City of San Jose’s decision to not participate in a field test. In addition, other municipalities/systems that were contacted to participate were not able to do so during the project schedule.
